    I came somewhat close to getting one years ago (could get my elbow to about 90 degrees), and simply practicing negatives or static holds seemed to help. The more tension you can generate, the better.

    If you can't deadlift 135, concentrate on other lifts like squats and barbell rows for now. Or just deadlift with the 25s until you're strong enough. The height of a deadlift is completely arbitrary,...

    It's a set-up I wasn't able to obtain until I got a home gym, but I have the basic utility bench from Rogue that I prop up on two milk crates. I also made some blocks with small lips that I could...

    I've done weighted chins for years, but am not sure I like them more than high rep sets. Chest supported barbell rows are a much more recent addition to my training, and my back got significantly...

    I did 374 in a meet after grinding out 315 for 10 sets of 3. ALMOST got 374 (got 363 on my 2nd) in a meet years ago only benching 345x2 prior. Now I can crank out 315 for multiple sets of 8-10 reps,...

    I rarely see these form breakdowns that are said to happen on max lifts. If anything, a form breakdown would cause you to miss a lift.

    Whichever has you progressing faster. You'd probably be better off alternating between the two, trying to hit PRs.

    It's not if you actually want to have a good bench press. It might not always be necessary to use a huge amount of volume, but sometimes doing more sets is the answer to improving your bench press.

    Thanks man. It shouldn't be terribly hard to balance them IMO. I kind of look at both sports as assistance work to the other. My general strength is improving quite a bit, just need a bit more...
